Chemo was a way to get better

So I heard that chemotherapy was pretty bad. The first time it was quite bad. They put this big needle up my arm. I could feel this cool stuff going through my vein. I thought, oh my goodness, it's going to knock my heart out. But I knew this was the way I was going to get better, so let it hurt a little bit. But it got easier and easier. They didn't quite tell me enough about the aftermath. Oh, it made me so nauseous and weak. It gets so bad you just feel like you're going to throw up your stomach, but this is my way to get better. A little suffering, but, you're going to get better, Geneva.
